Oil Water Separator Design (OWS) in California


Oil Water Separator is required for any facility that plans to discharge wastewater containing Oil or Sediment to the sewer. Facilities that typically need Oil Water Separator include:

Facilities using steam or pressure washers.

Quick-lube stations.

Transportation fueling facilities.

Vehicle and heavy equipment repair facilities.

Peyman Group [714] 496-8466 Mechanical Consultant Engineering in Orange County, CA Peyman Group's design team has designed different sizes of oil water separators for different types of industrial facilities.

Please call Peyman Group [714] 496-8466 Mechanical Consultant Engineering in Orange County, CA Peyman Group NOW to have preliminary discussion about your oil water separator design project and immediate assistance by our experts.

We size, select and design oil water separators based on requirements of the agencies having jurisdiction, using two major types of oil water separators as following:
 

1- Above Ground Oil Water Separators:
Peyman Group [714] 496-8466 Mechanical Consultant Engineering in Orange County, CA Peyman Group engineering team designs a widespread line of above ground oil water separators that bring you high efficiency and low maintenance, plus the adaptability to field customize to suit your particular application. Our extraordinary design attains astonishing outcomes.


2- Below Ground Oil Water Separators:
Peyman Group [714] 496-8466 Mechanical Consultant Engineering in Orange County, CA Peyman Group engineering team designs high-performance, cylindrical, below-ground oil water separators from 50 to 5,000 gallons per minute capacity. We select carbon steel (single and double wall) oil water separators with a variety of coatings, including strong dielectric coating of high solids polyurethane to protect tanks even under the most challenging conditions.

Some basic guide lines for oil water separators (OWS) selection followed by Peyman Group [714] 496-8466 Mechanical Consultant Engineering in Orange County, CA Peyman Group designers are as following:

   Oil Water Separator Design (OWS) in California
  • The separator shall be listed to Underwriter’s Laboratories UL-SU2215. 
  • Oil water separators are designed for operation at atmospheric pressure.  Separator tank inlet, outlet and manways must be vented to atmosphere to assure proper operation.
  • The two manway vents can be manifolded together to one common vent line. The inlet and outlet vents must each have their own separate, dedicated vent lines.
  • Separator shall be the standard patented product of a steel tank manufacturer regularly engaged in the production of such equipment. Manufacturer shall have at least 10 years of experience in manufacturing similar units for identical applications.  No subcontracting of tank fabrication shall be permitted.
  • Separator shall be fabricated, inspected, and tested for leakage before shipment from the factory by manufacturer as a completely assembled vessel ready for installation.
  • Separator shall be rectangular (above ground), or cylindrical (underground), horizontal, atmospheric-type with steel vessel intended for the separation and storage of flammable and combustible liquids.  The oil water separator shall have the structural strength to withstand static and dynamic hydraulic loading while empty and during operating conditions.
  • Separator shall have an oil storage capacity equal to about 30, and an emergency oil spill capacity equal to 60% of the total vessel volume.

Separator shall consist of inlet and outlet connections, non-clogging flow distributor and energy dissipater device, stationary under flow baffle, presettling chamber for solids, sludge baffle, oil coalescing chamber with removable parallel corrugated plate coalescer, with removable plates, and sectionalized removable polypropylene impingement coalescers to optimize separation of free oil from water, oil dam, effluent transfer pipes, an effluent clearwell, effluent downcomer at the outlet end of the separator to allow for discharge from the bottom of the effluent clearwell only, access cover(s) for each chamber, fittings for vent, oil and sludge pump-out, sampling box, gauging, drain and lifting lugs.

Provide Minimum 36” round manways for inspection & maintenance of underground oil water separators.
